Jolie: New film should make people uncomfortable 


-A A +A

 Angelina Jolie said Monday she hopes her directorial debut “In the Land of Blood and Honey” will provoke a wider discussion about rape — something that the International Criminal Court’s prosecutor said could be extremely valuable in helping bring perpetrators to justice.
Jolie, who received a Cinema for Peace award for her film and the group’s “honorary award for opposing war and genocide” for the movie focusing on the war in Bosnia late Monday, said she wants viewers to be “uncomfortable” when they see the film.
Jolie’s writing-directing debut hurls two lovers, a Bosnian Muslim woman and a Bosnian-Serb man, from their tender relationship before the war into the horrors of prison camps where rapes occurred.
“I believe these strong issues deserve to be presented in a very strong direct light,” Jolie, who was in Berlin for the Berlin International Film Festival, told a small group of reporters.
“It’s a strange thing to say as a director and a filmmaker, but I want people to be very uncomfortable when they watch it, and they should be upset and they should want some intervention, and they should want it to stop and they should be angry.”
